NYRU is a non-profit, river conservation organization that was created to coordinate and promote an effective river management strategy statewide.  NYRU's mission is to conserve, protect and enhance New York's rivers and riverine ecosystems.   NYRU has been instrumental in achieving hydropower licensing settlements that have protected hundreds of miles of rivers and thousands of acres of watershed lands while creating ecological and recreational enhancements at dozens of hydroprojects in New York.   Settlements to date equal $1.5 million for enhancement trust funds.  NYRU's advocacy has helped conserve the East Branch of Fish Creek, preserve access to the Salmon River and achieve recognition for the plight of the Hudson River.  NYRU is open to new membership.
